Lions Roar : September 2009
SHAMBHALA SUN SepteMBer 2009 15 I was a philosophy major in college, then one thing led to another. in my household we capture and release, except for spiders (auspicious portents of wealth) and crane flies (so beautiful and so harmless to humans), which we just let be. in the front parlor in the winter, ladybugs hatch—also lucky omens of wealth and happiness—and in warm weather we open windows and encourage them to fly away, fly away. But mosquitoes? dead. with a prayer for a good rebirth as we swat them splat. posted by Marc_hussein at shambhalasun.com/sunspace i don’t knowingly kill creatures in my apartment. i find that not leaving dishes in the sink and putting the cat’s food dish in a shallow pan of water (with a couple of drops of dish soap in the water to break the surface tension) keeps the ant popu- lation at a level i can cheerfully tolerate. larger bugs i carefully pick up and escort outside. in years past, i killed ants, but it just felt more and more wrong as time went on. they fear for their lives in the same way i fear for mine, and they want to be happy just as i do. posted by linda at shambhalasun.com/sunspace WhaT iT’S Really aBouT i would like to express my appreciation for your magazine in general and for eliza- beth Brownrigg’s article (“care taking,” July 2009) in particular. at almost seventy- two, i have recently emerged from a simi- lar situation and the author’s insights were helpful in understanding what the experi- ence was really all about. the article taught me so much, not the least of which is that deepening my understanding of being a spiritual being in human form warrants much more of my time and attention. thank you for being a voice of reason.
